Fans of John Green’s #1 New York Times bestseller The Fault In Our Stars have waited an excruciatingly long time to see the story being transformed from a novel to a film. Fortunately, the waiting has almost come to an end, because the film of “The Fault In Our Stars” will be released on June 6, 2014.
““The Fault In Our Stars” is a love story about two kids with cancer – but it’s not about cancer,” says leading actress Shailene Woodley. She portrays the character of Hazel Grace Lancaster, a girl who has been fighting lung cancer for years, but who has never been anything but terminally ill. Hazel’s life consists out of doctor’s appointments, reality shows and Cancer Kid Support Groups. This until one day Augustus “Gus” Waters appears at the support group. Ansel Eglort, the actor being cast for the part Gus, says: “It’s full of metaphors and Hazel and Gus both accept that this is going to be their only and last love.”
Here are the ten scenes in “The Fault In Our Stars” that I am most looking forward to seeing recreated on the big screen. What are your favorite scenes from the novel and which scenes are you most looking forward to seeing in the film? Let us know in the comments!
10. Hazel’s thirty-third half birthday
Not a lot of people will remember this scene (it fills only two pages in the book), but it is just a really sweet and understated moment between Hazel and her mother. To celebrate the fact that Hazel has survived for so much longer than expected, the two of them have come up with this system of celebrating every holiday known and unknown to mankind. So they celebrate Hazel’s thirty-third “half” birthday.
This scene really represents the deep emotional bond between Hazel and her mother. I am curious to see if actresses Shailene Woodley and Laura Dern are able to convey this unconditional love.
